(Pretoria, 5 October 2017) -- Exxaro Resources Ltd (JSE:EXX) today announced the pricing of its
upsized offering in the United States of 19,500,000 Class A ordinary shares (an increase from the
16,000,000 Class A ordinary shares previously announced) of Tronox Limited (NYSE:TROX), a

underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2,925,000 Class A ordinary shares at
the public offering price.

The expected net proceeds to Exxaro will be approximately USD 412 million (or approximately USD 474

deducting underwriting discounts and commissions. The offering is expected to close on 10 October
2017, subject to customary closing conditions.

The offering follows Exxaro's previous announcements, including the announcement on 8 March 2017
and 2 October 2017, of its intention to monetise its stake in Tronox.

for the offering.
